The Ex-Robben Island Political Prisoners Association of South Africa or EPPA is threatening to occupy prison cells on the Island while embarking on a hunger strike, if the Island management ignores their plight. They allege that their welfare as former political prisoners has been disregarded and that they are not drawing economic benefit from the world heritage site. The Association represents an estimated 1500 former political prisoners on the island. EPPA National Secretary Mpho Masemola says the institution is falling into disrepair under the current management. They have called for the resignation of the CEO of the Robben Island Museum, Mava Dada. “The EPPA has called this briefing to highlight a series of questions that have been put to the Robben Island museum and the entire Robben Island council, his name is Mava Dada, who stands accused of disregarding the experiences, contributions and welfare of former political prisoners and running the island as his personal fiefdom.”
The Robben Island Museum says it will respond on Friday to the allegations.
